Portfolio Workshop with Linda Oliver

New England Society of Botanical Artists presents: "Portfolio Workshop with Linda Oliver"

NESBA member Linda Oliver is going to teach a one-day workshop in which you will create a protective archival enclosure for the storage, and presentation, of your art work.

Linda has custom-designed this portfolio based upon enclosures used in the preservation of art on paper. Each student will create an 11" × 14" portfolio, a popular size for botanical artists. She will provide component parts measured and pre-cut. An illustrated hand-out accompanies the workshop, providing detailed instructions for creating portfolios customized to your artworks' dimensions.

Linda will also bring a selection of pre-cut decorative papers. Time permitting, she will show you how to fold a square sheet of paper into a simple, yet elegant, enclosure for business cards.

All materials and instructional handouts are included.

About our instructor:

* Linda Oliver's first career involved the natural sciences, working for both the National Parks and U. S. Forest Service. Eventually, experience at several Historic Sites, (living history demonstrations and historic preservation), led to her second career: Library Preservation, which evolved into Book and Paper Conservation. The next eighteen years' training and experience included Conservation of Books, and of Art on Paper; Archival Matting & Framing; and the custom design & construction of Conservation Enclosures (protecting artwork, books and more complex three-dimensional objects).
